Gov. Sullivan Chime of Enugu State made this known when he briefed State House correspondents after an Ebola virus response meeting of the governors, summoned by President Goodluck Jonathan.
“We all came out of this meeting happy, happy because of the initiative of Mr President.
“We have agreed to deal with this (virus). Having heard from our professionals, the Commissioners for Health, it has actually been shown that we have the capacity to fight Ebola. [eap_ad_2] “The Minister (of Health) has been very useful, in not just his suggestions, but also in things that will be done.’’
Also addressing the correspondents on the outcome of the meeting, Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos state warned contractors against supplying fake or sub-standard equipment for the treatment of the Ebola virus.
According to him, victims of the virus should not be kept in prayer houses as the disease requires orthodox medicine in addition to the prayer.
“Infected persons are not patients you can move by taxis, if they need prayers now it can be done electronically.
“We have to drop our traditional behaviours such as shaking of hands and nobody should be offended.
